I’m a master’s student at Stanford University studying aeronautics and astronautics. My dream is to send people to Mars and further humanity’s understanding of the universe. Topics of interest include dynamics and control, applied mathematics, and thermodynamics. 


My wife Laura and I were married in 2017, and we love exploring. Living in the western United States has given us an appreciation of nature’s grandeur, and we try to spend as much time outside as we can. Music is a huge part of our lives, as we both come from very musical families. We are both members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with a firm belief that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father.
